Lent Bumps 2017 – Friday – M1

After a chastening first day and redemption of sorts yesterday we lined up chasing Eddies M1 (who bumped us on day 1) and chased by Pembroke M2 (who bumped Christs M2 yesterday), expecting a tough race. In spite of a scrappy first stroke (mostly caused by the Men’s Captain not taking taps when he should have been) we started strongly and quickly settled into our race pace. Katie then expertly dissected Eddies and Queens who were clearing at First Post. We continued to hold an impressive Pembroke outside station and took a terrifyingly tight Ditton. On the Reach we made a series of moves and pushes to finish strongly ahead of Pembroke.

Tomorrow we will have Pembroke behind us and will be chasing Queens.
